10  Every Day:  1.5 inch 3 ring binder  Interactive Student Notebook (spiral notebook)  Writing utensil  Most days:  Textbook (bright pink sign outside my door on the days the textbook is needed)  “Grace period” for forgotten materials ends this week. Students may return to lockers but will lose 2 points on their behavior card for being unprepared for class.

11  Science (and Reading)  Username: Students’ computer login at school (user initials and number, lowercase and no spaces) Password: success2014

12  Left side pages we complete in class (notes)  Right side pages are for students to process and interact with new information  Creative opportunities

15  In order to be the most successful, students must put forth the effort starting at the beginning of school.

17  Agenda  Write down homework, upcoming quizzes, tests, long-term assignments  My Website  Daily homework; notes; study guides; helpful websites; games; links to online science book, OAS, and Family Portal  Family Portal  Immediate, online information for grades  Can alert you with failing grades  Encouraged to register

18  Opportunity for every student to improve test grades on every test (no corrections on vocab test tomorrow)  Template on my website  More than just correcting the answer-it’s work!  Potential to improve class average by several points

19  Turned in complete and on time to receive full credit  Accepted late but points deducted  11 points per day  No credit after 3 days  Reminder:  Please check your child’s agenda to make sure homework is being completed, especially if your child is receiving zeros for homework grades.  NHI (not handed in) recorded in gradebook until assignment is turned in

21  Stamps are to keep you informed  Received when any assignment is not complete or on-time  “Late” implies after the scheduled time for class to begin
